Non-Vehicle Related Pedestrian Accidents
While vehicles are involved in a great deal of pedestrian accidents, there are actually quite a few other things that could hurt you while you are walking and result in legal action. Thousands of these accidents happen year to year, and the injuries can range from minor to severe.
The most common sources of pedestrian injuries without cars include defects in sidewalks and parking lots or just general disrepairs. Cracks, uneven walkways, and uncleaned areas during snowy and icy conditions are the responsibility of the property owner, and they are held legally liable for your injuries should something occur because of them.
